Gene Rollins has a skunk coat for his little black dog.
It gathers second looks from nearly everyone.
Peggy was gifted a very large cabbage and I can attest to the fact that not only is it big, it is also dense. I am guessing it was in excess of 15 pounds. Those are two very large apples beside the big ol' head.
If you are a reader of this blog then you know that Janet Rader does rock pictures (see Show and Tell blogpost). We have recently learned that one of her works will be on permanent display.
From Janet,"I'm so proud to say that the Alamo Texas museum wanted one of my rock pictures for permanent display. It is of an angel watching over a little boy sitting on a rock."
Now we have a good reason to visit the museum.
The park is emptying quickly as many like to be back home by Easter. When we have the AC running and all the trees and flowers are in full bloom it can be hard to remember that the trees are still bare of leaves in the upper midwest the last snowstorm of the year could still be around the corner.
We who have mostly summer days in our lives have difficulty using words like summer and winter. We resort to seasons. "See you next season!" is more descriptive of reality for us.
Here are some blooming pictures taken around the park.
If you thought you didn't like cats, think again. These are the cutest little bundles of energy you've ever seen. Chet & Irma are hosting this family of mama and four youngsters. Mama cat has various names around the park but I call her Porch Kitty because that's where she has hung out most of the time. Her kittens are just as cute as can be and are the hit of the neighborhood.
We are one of the oldest parks in the valley and within walking distance of the famous Don-Wes Flea Market. Along with being one of the oldest we also have the wonderful reputation for being a friendly and active park. We have an association of members who give generously of their time in a myriad of ways to make coming to the Rio Grande Valley each winter a whole bunch of fun for everyone. So come on down and have fun with us!!!
